Raymond Scott has a well-deserved reputation as an electronic pioneer and the creator of the classic Soothing Sounds For Baby, but it is important to remember his more immediately popular work, which remains fantastic. This Time with Strings, recorded with Scott’s Orchestra, is a fine set of luscious dance band, soundtrack and jazz music. Reissued by the Basta label.

7/10 Jack Customer review, 26th December 2017
Raymond Scott was a strong influence on mid-20th century American Music, but this album sounds more influenced than influential. At his best, Raymond Scott used inventive rhythms, ground-breaking instrumentation, and original orchestration to create a body of work that survives today. These pieces generally tend to be more complex, ambitious and yet shorter than his earlier works. Alas, the arrangements here are not exceptional - none would compel one to run to the radio and shout, What the hail was THAT?
